Discovering my Identity: Hi I'm Ricky Lee

Unread postby ricky.lee » 5th January, 2018, 1:15 pm

Hi ya'll, I'm Ricky and I'm a 16 year old Asian American currently residing in TX.

I began the exploration of my sexuality in a very distorted and unnatural way. The taboo nature of gayness within my household (as I'm sure all of you can relate) drove me into the deep corners of the internet, in which I had no guidance, no one to turn to, literally no one there to help me as I tried to figure out who I was at the tender age of 13. There were multiple sites that I wandered, aimlessly, trying to fulfill my sexual and interpersonal desires. This all lead to me doing unspeakable actions (cuz they're illegal shhh) but what saved me was a set of people who could relate exactly with what I was going through, and could guide me through my life as they had more experience with me .
This set of people came from those website that ironically were the ones that lead me to do bad things. Little by little, as I (hopefully) began to mature more, I started formulating my identity as not just a gay individual, but a gay Asian American. This last bit took me a couple more years to figure out, as encountering more and more people I realized that the cultural differences and the racial structures actually played a large part in how people treated me and how I was expected to react.
All of my experiences, as Deleuze would call them all of my "Affects" which have shaped and continue to shape me as an individual, have largely impacted the way that I interact with the world. Rediscovering my identity in the past few weeks has lead me to pursue more community building activities-as I felt the need to connect other teenagers that suffer through the same things I did during my tender years-and so here I am now, on yet another community building site.

This reads like a political speech. I kept on expecting you to say, "and that's why, ladies of gentlemen, you should vote #Lee2018. For a gay Asian American who will serve YOU! *insert rapturous applause*

Welcome :keke:
